A guide on my process for colouring like in the Arcana which I developed through studying the style.

Now, this is just for sprites or for neutral lighting. In the case of most memories/CGs, you have more interesting colours to use, but the process is identical. There are just extra steps.

Using my favourite memories for each character as examples (hopefully, you can tell which ones) you can see this process. All of this happens on layers above the base drawing.

Usually, you set a colour-filled layer to the setting “multiply” over the entire drawing, then using a “screen”, “add”, or “hard light” layer, you add the lighting. Depending on the intensity of the lighting, the outline will be coloured to be lighter.

The shading colour rarely changes, aside from slight hue changes.

Misc advice/tips/tricks below. I may update it depending on if I get further questions.

Thanks for the tip @the-great-nome-authority! I use Gimp, but it should feature “multiply”. It does indeed look very useful, I’ll just have to experiment with it! Post

ok, I can try, the multiplying is a fantastic feature that will darken your color, let’s say you get the base color of the hair, create a new layer and use multiply over it, the color on the new layer with multiply will be darker than the one on the base layer. Allow me to demonstrate: (no multiply) Post

@jk-and-melbourne @silver-and-shadow or anyone who knows, could you explain Step 4: Colour to me please? What’s with the multiplying? And how do you get only the lineart to soften in colour? I’m ready to learn! :) Post

Also, I’ve found that the line work color for the skin tone is slightly darker than the top lip color.
